NYC 2933 - Kirkwood, MO

Seen here is the headlight and number plate on the stained and streaked front of New York Central (NYC) 2933, a 4-8-2 style steam locomotive that is on display at the National Museum of Transportation, in Kirkwood, Missouri.

This is one of the earliest digital images I ever took, and was taken with a Canon G3. The G3 had a whopping 4 megapixel sensor, and in my opinion only produced moderate results. However, the G3 was my my introduction to capturing images digitally on a regular basis. It was difficult to get good images with the G3, when the images had any significant amount of dark areas because of the amount of noise that was generated by the camera's sensor. However, I feel that this image turned out fairly well, considering the camera's capabilities.
